GREAT FOR CITATIONS

Aims to provide an improved understanding of problems commonly encountered by the therapist working with people with neurological disability.

Describes aspects of posture & movement difficulties which may occur as a result of neurological damage & gives guidance to help the therapist to plan the appropriate treatment programme for each patient.

Emphasis is on identification of symptoms in relation to impairment & disability rather than on a detailed description of neurological conditions.

Shows how to analyse patient problems and select appropriate therapies for each situation.

The emphasis is therefore on identification of symptoms in relation to the resultant impairment of movement, rather than on the detailed description of neurological conditions.

Whilst it is important to understand the disease process of, for example, multiple sclerosis, the medical diagnosis has little bearing on the problems arising in terms of functional impairment.
